Father’s Day 2017

Today is Father’s Day.  I wrote this post last year all about the wonderful Dad’s that my family and I are lucky enough to have in our lives and to be honest, there’s not really much more I can add to it – everything I wrote before still holds true. I’m still finding it hard not having my…

Three Years Married

A couple of days ago the husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary.  Well, I say ‘celebrated’.  Truth be told it was kind of a weird day.  But that’s for a future blog post, coming soon… 😉 I can’t quite believe that we’ve been married for three years already – it’s crazy how fast…

Mimi: Nine

A couple of weeks ago Mimi, our middle daughter, turned nine. I think I’m still in a little bit of denial.  I can’t believe that nine whole years have passed since I welcomed her into the world, ten days after her due date, her crazy head of pitch black hair and her powerful lungs surprising us all. She still surprises us on…

Me: Thirty-Four

A couple of weeks ago I turned thirty-four.  Thirty-four!  The words sound alien because in my head I feel about sixteen.  And yet here I am, more than double the age I feel, somewhat bemused as to where the time has gone and how I’ve ended up here. All in all it was a pretty…

Mother’s Day 2017

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day and I was lucky enough to be thoroughly spoilt with homemade cards from the girls, a card they picked out at the shop with their Daddy, a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and Ed Sheeran’s new CD (which has been on non-stop in my car ever since!). They wrote such lovely words inside the…

A Whole Year of Blogging!

Last week, on 22nd March 2017, my blog turned one year old! I can’t believe I launched Picture Taker Memory Maker a whole year ago – the time seems to have flown by so quickly and simultaneously it feels like it’s been a part of my life forever.  I honestly can’t imagine venturing out without…

Harry Potter Book Night

The first Thursday in February every year is a very special evening… it’s Harry Potter Book Night! Our local branch of Waterstones always holds a brilliant event in celebration of all things Harry Potter related, and other bookshops and libraries all over the globe put on special events for fans young and old. Last year Ella and I went…

Lola: Seven

Just under a week ago, my littlest baby turned seven years old.  SEVEN!  How is my youngest daughter seven years old already?  I have no idea where those seven years have gone – they seem to have disappeared in a whirlwind of milestones and the general busy-ness of life. She was due to be born on…

Festive Fun: Christmas 2016

Christmas is a relatively quiet affair in our house.  I’ve mentioned before that the husband only really gets Christmas Day itself off – the rest of the time he’s working and so it’s up to the girls and I to make our own fun. I love the little Christmas Eve traditions that we’ve created over…
